By the time Saban decides to retire, the coaching picture would have changed. Who knows, the next coach might come from the NFL or a coach outside the south.
He is a much better passer than KJ at this stage that will make him more of a duel threat. Total package!
I guess this writer had to submit something in order to get paid. Based on his “expert” observations, I wonder if he will pick Arkansas to finish last in the west.
Pittman has already confirmed that Fortin is doing very well and could play the backup role leaving Hornsby at WR and with his speed could cause headaches for defenses.
Sounds like 2 US Senators want to make it easier to cheat and get away with it! In other words let’s make the NCAA more like Congress.
Notae had a great year but against Duke, he was a liability. Because we couldn’t get offensive rebounds, Notae was 5-14 and the team 26-62 which allowed Duke great opportunities to score. JWill needed help rebounding and the 7 ft guy we have on the bench is too weak and clumsy to help! Muss must recruit or get a transfer center to help rebounding in order to get to the next level.
Last year as a higher seed our first game wasn’t pretty and we made it to the elite 8. I love it when a pencil geek preaches to a veteran coach what they should do. Did he also pick Arkansas to lose that game?
I also thought they were swinging for the fence rather than letting it happen naturally. I suspect they were trying to impress the crowd that they played tight.
LynnBib is naive. Most NIL deals are confidential so that is why you can’t get confirmation from any players. Also Fisher said the university didn’t spend a dime to pay players to sign. We’ll he was honest about that but fails to say all that money came from boosters. Yes NIL is legal but it was designed to pay a current player for use of his name and image and not for inducing a recruit to sign with a school. Schools who have/had history of boosters willing to pay players can now do it legally but it’s still cheating.
About 40 years ago a wealth Bama booster I met at a party told me exactly how they got players and now it’s legal.
If a school makes money from a players name and likeness, the player should receive compensation but what we’re seeing now is pay for play in recruiting. All this whining from players that they didn’t have enough money to go to the movies or even eat was BS. The people who were pushing this were parents who wanted to profit off their kids and boosters who can now buy players legally.
Until Jerry Jones steps down or dies we will see this repeated every year. McCarthy is a joke of a coach or as Jerry would say, the puppet I love pulling the strings on. Dak is an adequate QB but he is not elite but he’s Jerry’s adopted boy so he can’t abandon him without admitting he made a mistake.
This was a purge of players that resisted being coached, being held accountable. Several parents have come out and said the coaches treat everyone equally instead showing favoritism and these kids just can’t handle that. Of the players that entered the portal maybe 3 would have been contributors next year but they could also been a cancer to the team. As for Hornsby I understand he wants to play but he’s one play away from starting if KJ gets hurt. If he transfers he would have to learn a new system and still compete to start. I think he should stay where he is and wait for his opportunity.
You make this comment when it’s reported A&M laid out $30M in NIL deals for this years class?
Y’all can’t even field a team so they probably forgot you existed.
I said when NIL was created it would give boosters a legal way to cheat. Take a look at Texas. It’s probable that a non-profit received money from boosters to pay every Texas scholarship OL $50,000/yr. Is this what we visioned NIL’s to be? I foresee rule changes in the next year or two before things get out of hand.
After the game Muss complained about the poor defense. He should have also included the poor shooting that has plagued this team all year. With no outside game teams go to a zone and force us to score with steals and fast breaks. Our 7’3” center is a weak stick and not a threat, a total waste of space. I’m wondering why Muss is holding back some of our bench players who might be able to add some spark to this team.
Totally understand his decision and think he chose wisely. Now if we were playing for a NC I think he would have stayed.
Some PSU fans predict some of their players opting out of the game.
They’ll give Kirby COY because he took a team loaded with 4 & 5 star players who were expected to win the east and met expectations while Pittman took a team some thought would finish last in the west with the toughest SOS to a third place finish.
Am I the only person wondering why Arkansas is not rated! Finished 3rd in the SEC West and 4th best team in the SEC.
As an Arkansas fan I’ve come to understand that if you’re a redheaded stepchild you get treated differently than the SEC blue bloods. There is nothing you can do about it but just accept you’re going to get screwed on some calls. Nix criticism of the officials after all the breaks they’ve received is laughable and I’m sure the Auburn players didn’t appreciate the bulletin material for the Tide.
It’s obvious that the writer is ignoring the chart he posted at top of the article.
KJ had at least 3 drops which two of them should have been TD’s. He’s progressing nicely but the real concern is who do we have as backup if he goes down. Hornsby was not at all impressive so I wondering if he is a suitable choice as QB2!
We played a fresh offensive group in the second half and couldn’t move the ball against a pitiful SWAC defense. Yes I’m concerned about our future!
An area of concern showed its ugly face in the second half. The second team offense could not move the ball against a SWAC defense. Depth is still a major concern and it’s a huge problem!
